Description

When I was young, our family used to vacation in New Hampshire. One year we visited Franconia Notch State Park with it’s amazing Flume Gorge and Basin. This pullover reminds me of the layers of moss-covered rock that line the sides of the gorge. It’s the perfect sweater for a cool weather hike or trail ride through the woods, or for curling up by the fire afterwards. A garter stitch detail runs down each side from the center underarm into the garter rib bottom band.

This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.

Finished bust measurements: 29.5 (33.5, 37.5, 41.5) (45.5, 49.5, 53.5) (57.5, 61.5, 65.5, 69.5)"; intended to be worn with approximately 6" ease
